  1. Re: Zambia and Zimbabwe border crossings ( INTERPOL )

    As Stan Weakly argued in many postings prior to mine, this entire issue of a Police Clearance at Zambian borders is nothing more than a scam. Chirundu has 'made it official' by now and every person...

    Re: Best current Garmin for T4A

    I will do some tests between 610, 7## and 276 to see how it does with T4A loaded - map scroll and POI search. I am currently testing a 750i and so far I am very impressed with the unit. It is...

    Re: Best current Garmin for T4A

    The "i" in the 700i and 750i denotes INreach. That means it also comes with the satellite communications included, just like the 66i.

    The Montana 700 (without the "i") does not have the satellite...

    Re: 50ppm diesel availability.

    In Zambia 50ppm is not yet available. They have what they call low sulphur diesel (LSD) and you find this in major towns. The Zambian LSD refers to 500ppm diesel, not 50 ppm - very confusing.

    I am not aware of any Linux compatible Garmin software. Basecamp will run on Windows and Mac and Mapsource only Windows.
